At Scope, we’re sometimes asked if we can provide disability equality training (DET) or consultancy services to companies we work with. Since 2010, we haven’t provided these services, recognising the excellent work of disabled people’s organisations (DPOs) and disability consultants in this area.
In future, we’d like to use these occasions to introduce companies to DPOs and disabled people who are consultants that can deliver DET or other services the companies want.
So we’re inviting expressions of interest from organisations and individuals interested in joining our list of trusted providers.
Any work would be negotiated between the DPO and the client, but we want to offer companies some assurance on the quality and type of delivery, for example:
- We’d expect any DET training to be delivered by a suitably qualified disabled person who has sound knowledge and understanding of the social model of disability.
- We’d not expect a DET training programme to include any simulation training.
- Any technically oriented service, like access auditing, would require evidence of technical competence.
What’s in it for me?
- Opportunities to work with big companies and build new client networks.
- Payment for your services.
What happens next?
- If you are interested, please email Graham Findlay, Relationship Management Executive (Disabled People’s Organisations) firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
- We’ll send you more information on how the scheme works and a list of criteria we expect you or your organisation to meet.
- If you meet the criteria, we will add you to our list of trusted providers.
